Thanks for the advice, one last question,
I noticed that when reading a large file it takes different bytes to start 
the file (for example 2Mb) , even when header is at the beginning, so can 
you confirm that the header size depends on the size of the video and so if 
I have to stream that I need to download first all that bytes?
thanks in advance
